BOMCA is introducing a new effective learning tool that could be used in education and retraining of border guards – distance learning system. On November 3rd, the equipment was officially transferred and the system with its capabilities and advantages was presented to State Border Service and Military Armed Forces Institute.

Videoconferencing and lessons via video will provide students and teachers with an immersive, innovative learning experience that combines high-definition video and audio tools - officers and teachers will be able to connect to students in live regime without physically attending the classroom.

The system will allow State Border Service of the Kyrgyz Republic, its Training Centre in Osh and Military Institute to connect to each other and also to receive guest videolectures from abroad.  

The system will connect Training Centre of the State Border Service, Military Armed Forces Institute, Border Guard College in Latvia and Riga Technical University. A first pilot distance lecture was delivered today to Military Institute trainees by lecturers of Border College in Rezekne, Latvia.

The first BOMCA operations in Central Asia began in 2003 and, since then, BOMCA has strengthened the partnership between Central Asian Governments in the field of border management. The European Union allocated a sum of EUR 40,8 million to BOMCA for the period of 2003 – 2018, out of which almost EUR 5 million were assigned to its 9th implementation phase (2015 - 2018).
